Sincere and deepest condolences to the king family,
So sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing.

Ian and my deepest condolences to my aunt Lorraine, and my cousins, Darren, Wendy, Bev and my uncle Ed, to Susan, Jennifer and Ashley, I am so sorry for your loss.

I will always remember my cousin, Wayne with the deepest of affection. I looked up to him with admiration as an older cousin. He was always a handsome guy with smiling eyes and the best dimples ever!

I loved you with all my heart even though I didn’t get to see you as much as I would have liked, living here in T.O., especially during Covid and not being able to come home.

I know you suffered greatly as did your family to watch you suffer. I pray you are in a better place because you deserved so much more. You did not deserve to have this happen to you but life isn’t always fair.

Wayne was the best of the very best, a person, parent, grandparent, husband, brother, son, cousin, friend, can be and that is maybe the best we can expect to be while we are here on God’s green earth.

Life can be taken but none of this can ever be taken from him and his life will live on in all who knew him.
I will miss you greatly.

You leave so many beautiful memories with me from our youth on Bell Island to times I would see you when visiting home.

Forever your loving cousin, Diane King and Ian McKenzie

Sorry for the loss of your cousin Glenda and my deepest sympathies are with you all at this sad and difficult time.

My deepest condolences to the king family,I worked with Wayne at Dominion for many years,.He was a great guy to work with.

We know how much Wayne meant to you all and how greatly he will be missed. When we think of Wayne we remember the time when you all came for dinner at our house in Ontario. Boy did we have quite the crew and what a time we had so many laughs.
Cherish all the good times you had with Wayne and know he will be an angel watching over you all. Smile, laugh and remember the happy times as that is what Wayne would want. If you need either of us feel free to reach out,
Love (Aunt) Goldie, Rosylin and the rest of the Colbourne Family

I knew Wayne’s parents, George and Lorraine.
They were friends of my parents.

George was the skipper on the Bell Island Ferry and My Father, Lewis Pynn worked on the Bell Island side!

I remember Wayne, Bev and Wendy when they
were younger.

It has been a long time since I saw Lorraine, if she was going to be at Carnell’s, would it be okay for me to come see her?

Ashley so sad for you and your family on your Dad’s passing, he is so young.

Someone from Bell Island shared his obituary but it was only when I called Valerie did I know who you were!

Give your Nan my love.

Our sincerest condolences to you all – Susan, Jennifer, Ashley and your families. To us, Wayne always seemed to be a man contented with his life, where he was and who he was with. He had a calm and easy going nature that was displayed in his warm and engaging smile. Even a brief talk with Wayne left you a little more positive and contented with taking on your own daily trials. It’s not hard to reason why Wayne was surrounded by a wonderful and loving family. We wish you all the best during this difficult time.
Lynn and Dan
